Originally from Southern California, Matt grew up on the coast in a close-nit family of six and regularly connected with his large extended family from Croatia, France, and Peru. He developed a passion for design while enrolled in engineering / architecture drafting all four years of high school. This led him to Montana to gain his independence and pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Design from Montana State University, where he will complete his Masters of Architecture in December of 2023. He brings fresh enthusiasm for design to the projects on which he assists and sees each as an opportunity to learn from a respected, collaborative team.
Matt channels his creativity into music, playing piano, drums, and guitar in his spare time. When he’s not playing music, he has a board below his feet— surfing, snowboarding, and skateboarding whenever he can.
